PROBING AND SOUNDING

A number of probing/sounding methods may be used for subsoil investigation.

We will propose a probing/sounding programme tailored to your specific situation. This often entails multiple phases, with amendments to the initial results being discussed with the civil engineer or architect. Geotest Ltd.'s services include:
